Luca Toni is becoming increasingly frustrated at Bayern Munich.

Fearing he is losing match-fitness as he continues to be frozen out by coach Louis van Gaal, the World Cup winner has asked to play for the club's reserve-team, which competes in the local third tier.

Van Gaal, however, has refused, says Bild Zeitung.

Francesco Totti revealed yesterday that he has been urging Toni to join him at Roma, while West Ham United boss Gianfranco Zola is also keen to setup a January deal.
